Essential: a masterpiece of fusion music
The day I heard these three musicians, I was literally "combed back." Well, is that this concert became part of the essential in guitar history (long before fashion "unplugged").

Loose and spontaneous, this (mainly) live album is a meeting of three of the greatest guitarists in the world for an acoustic summit the likes of which the guitar-playing community rarely sees. Broken up into three duo and two trio performances, Friday Night in San Francisco catches all three players at the peaks of their quite formidable powers.

This live recording from 1980 matched fusion guitar heavyweights Al DiMeola and John McLaughlin with Spanish guitar whiz Paco DeLucia. The result, a dazzling technical display, also earned jeers as the international summit of world-class finger-wigglers by critics who felt it was long on chops and short on heart. John McLaughlin's importance to the development of the jazz fusion scene can't be overestimated: as the guitarist on Miles Davis's seminal Bitches Brew and A Tribute to Jack Johnson, he was the first significant guitarist of the electric jazz era; on his own, he brought power rock, spiritualism, and lush orchestration to the scene via his Mahavishnu Orchestra. DiMeola, the most commercially successful next-generation fusion guitarist, achieved stardom with Chick Corea's group Return to Forever and on his own records. DeLucia, virtually unknown in the U.S., is a fine flamenco guitarist, and it is that orientation more than anything that colors Friday Night: even when playing straightforward non-flamenco compositions, the phrasing and sensibility lurks behind every note. Still, the passion of the music is frequently marred by the participants' inability to play at anything but the most breakneck pace.

…Somehow John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola and Paco De Lucía, became my heroes (and many)….
Я тут обнаружил, что заработала ссылка My News, то есть наконец-то стал выдаваться список всех твоих публикаций, а не только страница с последними. Это несказанно порадовало, и я решил посмотреть свои старые публикации. Да-с, очень много пропало… Но это и повод кое-что повторить!

Один из моих любимейших альбомов гитарной музыки. Такие люди собрались! Гиганты инструментала, отцы… уж даже не знаю чего… :)
По моему чисто субъективному мнению, ни один из их сольных альбомов (которых и не сосчитать) не был таким удачным. Что интересно, легко узнается индивидуальность каждого и гитарные партии перепутать нельзя. Рекомендуется поклонникам каждого из музыкантов к обязательному прослушиванию! Впрочем, у вас уже, наверное, этот альбом есть… :)

SATURDAY NIGHT IN BOMBAY was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best World Music Album.
John McLaughlin brought his revived Indo-jazz project Shakti to Bombay (Mumbai) in late 2000, and the result is this live disc, which features ly four compositions but runs over an hour in length. (The title is a deliberate play on 1980's Friday Night in San Francisco.) McLaughlin's electric guitar and Zakir Hussain's tabla remain at the core of the group's sound. U. Shrinivas (on mandolin) and V. Selvaganesh (on kanjira, ghatam, and mridangam, all Indian percussion instruments) remain from the previous album, but there are also a number of Indian guest musicians, giving the music many added dimensions.
